Future UK Energy Strategy

EDM number 510 in 1996-97, proposed by Frank Cook on 11/02/1997.

That this House recognises the growing international consensus with regard to the dangers of climate change caused by anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases, believes that in the light of the Secretary of State for the Environment's recent call for a significant cut in carbon emissions by the year 2010, the United Kingdom needs to act urgently to cut carbon emissions from energy generation by implementing policies to ensure the development of an environmentally sustainable energy system; further believes that the transition to such an approach would bring significant social and economic benefits to the United Kingdom in the form of increased employment, reduction of fuel poverty and the development of an internationally competitive sustainable energy industry; and calls upon the Government to adopt measures designed specifically to achieve as a minimum by the year 2010 the generation of 10 per cent. of the United Kingdom electricity supply by renewable energy systems, 10GW of combined heat and power nationally and a 30 per cent. improvement in building, commercial and industrial energy efficiency throughout the country in order to ensure that the United Kingdom can begin to establish itself the standards of environmental protection that it is calling upon others to achieve.

This motion has been signed by a total of 90 MPs.
